Last week I was at the Michigan Fiber Festival. I took a couple of classes, was a vendor and managed to get some shopping in.
I had a budget that was quickly spent but on items that I really have wanted. Over the last few years, my Tour de Fleece team has had an amazing spinner who is a rock star on the Trindle. I have wanted one with hopes that my spinning will look as awesome as hers. Maybe? Maybe with a lot of practice.
I also have been wanted the Ken Ledbetter Drop Spindle which has interchangeable shafts. He was featured in the last issue of Spin Off Magazine and low and behold, one of the vendors had a handful of his spindles. I picked up this lovely spindle and my friend, GranniSue, got one too. Isn't it beautiful?
I also found a set of lovely buttons. We always need buttons on hand, right?
So those are my new lovelies to adore. I also had an opportunity to demonstrate spinning with members of the Spinner's Study Group through the Weavers Guild of Kalamazoo, of which I belong. We all demonstrated different spinning techniques and taught a few people how to spin. I managed to create these three yarns during the week...they'll end up for sale since I need to pay for all of my new purchases ;-)

FINALLY: I have been having issues with commenting on blogs due to word verification. If you don't get a comment from me, it's not that I couldn't read, it's because I have no patience with word verification. I have been blogging for a few years and never had issues...
